Real Wood Garage Doors
What Are Wood Garage Doors?
Real wood doors are durable and long-lasting. They can complement any home. Real wood doors also resist denting and scratching due to the strong wood used to make them. However, as beautiful real wood garage doors are, outside factors such as moisture buildup and pests can cause you to need more frequent maintenance to preserve them. Since real wood doors are made entirely of wood, they will need refinishing every few years to reseal the wood and keep the appearance. This is why you should find a company that you trust to take care of your real wood garage door installation and repairs for years to come.

Faux Wood Garage Doors Have Even More Benefits!
What Are Faux Wood Garage Doors?
Wood-look garage doors give your home the look and feel of a real wood garage door without the high cost or frequent maintenance. Wood-look garage doors are steel doors with a wood-like overlay. Faux wood garage doors are durable and long-lasting, helping you avoid potential damages that can occur with real wood doors.
With faux wood doors, you also still get the option of insulation, meaning you don’t have to give up temperature or noise control. So upgrade your home with faux wood doors, enhancing your curb appeal while avoiding some of the costly repairs that come with real wood doors.
Which Kind of Wood Garage Door Is Best For You?
Deciding on whether to get a real wood garage door or a wood look garage door is a tough decision, but it is solely based on what your garage door needs and wants are. There are a few things to take into consideration when choosing what type of wood garage door is best for you.
- Cost – Real wood doors are custom measured and handmade to fit your home. They also require a special finish and grain. These customizations mean they are a more expensive choice. So in terms of managing budget, faux wood doors are a more cost-effective option.
- Wait Time – Real wood garage doors have a longer wait time due to being custom built to your specifications. Depending on how quickly you want your new door installed, we’ll have to discuss whether a faux wood garage door or a real wood garage door would best fit your timeline.
- Home’s Value – Although both faux and real wood garage doors will increase your curb appeal, real wood doors will increase your home’s value the most dramatically. Real wood garage doors also add huge value to the resale value of your home.
- Maintenance – Real wood doors require consistent maintenance over time, while faux wood garage doors will just need the regular maintenance that any steel door would need. If you are looking for less maintenance overall, then wood look garage doors are the better choice.
When you are ready to give your home a new look, then J.A.G. & Sons Overhead Door can handle it. Our team is fully equipped to install, service, and maintain both wood and faux wood garage door installations. Learn more about our wood garage door options by contacting us today!
